Suspects snatched as traffic snarls getaway

Phnom Penh’s notorious congestion has its uses. A motorbike-riding duo fleeing the scene of an alleged bag snatching was foiled by traffic and arrested in Phnom Penh’s Por Sen Chey district on Sunday.

Police said a woman, 36, was holding her son’s hand when the men snatched her bag and roared off with the police hot on their heels.

The chase lasted a kilometre, ending when traffic forced the alleged thieves to continue on foot, enabling police to arrest them. KOH SANTEPHEAP
